Masks, K-Beauty & Dupes

A little stop at CVS ended in me leaving with $60 less in my wallet! Granted, some of the beauty products were for my daughter, but I just couldn’t resist picking some things up for myself! The first item I bought was something I’ve been debating about. Iceland’s Hydrating Eye Stick was once again staring…

Skin Care Products Wishlist

**All images are taken directly from both websites** I’ve been reading a lot of makeup wishlists lately, so I thought I’d write one that contained my most wished-for skincare products. I think I’m good with color cosmetics for now (but not that long)! I’ve written a lot about Josie Maran’s brand, and I do love it….

Chemical vs. Physical SPF

As a skincare/beauty junkie, I am always careful about using SPF all year round. Regardless of the season, it’s vital to use SPF even if it’s cloudy. I was using a skincare line faithfully and always wore a sunscreen in the form of makeup or a moisturizer that contained SPF. I was on a really…

Physicians Formula Plump Potion Quick Review

If you read my previous post about my CVS haul, you’ll know that this is one of the products I bought. I just tried it out, and I am blown away! Keep in mind that I have very thin lips. Anything to make them fuller, I’m on board! Here is my before and after: I…

My Skincare Stash

My previous post was about cleaning out my cosmetics and getting rid of what I didn’t plan on using. I promised that I would share with you my skincare stash, so here it is! I apologize in advance for the long post. Facial Cleansers I do the double cleansing method every day. I’ll use one…

Drugstore Concealer, All-Over Face Palette, and Lip Mask

I’ve been on the hunt for a drugstore concealer for a while now. As much as I love Josie Maran’s Chubby Concealer Stick, it just doesn’t give me enough coverage on those days where I need to cover all the craziness going on that day. I read about several, and I intended to buy Maybelline…

La Prairie Platinum Serum Dupe

I wrote a post about the benefits of 24K gold on your skin, but what about platinum? La Prairie has come out with Cellular Serum Platinum Rare and many celebrities are using it. Well, you pretty much have to be very wealthy to use this serum. One ounce sells for – get ready – $755! Yikes!…

Disappointing Products

So, I’ve seen some bloggers write about the products they like the least. I have to say that there are some products that I’ve been disappointed with. For some, I really had high hopes. Others, I took a chance on even though I was hesitant. Foundations: One of my favorite beauty brands is IT Cosmetics….

MODA Prismatic Makeup Brushes

I took a trip to Walmart to browse their beauty and came across the MODA Prismatic Face Perfecting Makeup Blending Brushes with Handles Kit (4 Count).  The look and shape of them intrigued me so I picked up a pack. The brush on the far right is the biggest one and to be used as a…

My Gilded Honey Collection Arrived!

I wrote another post regarding Laura Geller’s Gilded Honey Collection that she was selling on QVC. I decided to buy it, and boy am I glad!! With the exception of her Balance n’ Brighten foundation (I’m still on the fence about it), I love everything. The six piece collection came with a baked foundation, dual…

TJ Maxx Skin Care Haul

I went to TJ Maxx today on a whim knowing they have a lot of skincare at great prices. Well, I went a little crazy, although, you’d never know it by how much I spent – $36.50!! Here’s what I got: SpaLife Shimmering Under Eye Revitalizer – Gold & Collagen I know, I have an…
